I agree wholeheartedly with Cassidy. The solo section can get pretty spacey, but I don't think I've ever heard a version where they've quite turned the corner into full-out jam territory. I don't know if I've ever heard a really big Wharf Rat either, but that would be cool.

I always wonder about the possibilities for the songs that they play totally straight. What would a 20-minute Iko Iko sound like? Me and My Uncle? Passenger?

If you want to know what a longer IKO IKO would sound like try the David Nelson Band. DNB has several extended versions....all good.

Regarding cassidy I think even the band acknowledged it could open up. I read an article with Jer and Bob in 93 and the interviewer asks about this and the possibilty to expand and even place in the second set. Weir and jer start getting excited and throw ideas around on how to do it. The interviwerer then indicates that weeks later they take his lead and place Cassidy in the second set and jam into UJB (cal expo I think). But, alas, they never experiment after that.

As for me I think Victim falls in this catagory. I'm not a huge fan but depending on the night and the placement in the set this tune could get a more expansive form.

Lobster,

I agree on Victim there was plenty of room to expand out that tune.

Check out the Scarlet> Victim> Fire, it was a Shoreline show, sorry I don't have the date, but it was the night they played Dark Star>Promised to close the first set.

indeed August. I have that gig and love it. Hornsby tips the Victim a bit early but that combo is quite unique
